I have the following insert statement that will not seem to work.  It worked fine until I added the "type" and the area of "this is a test".

How can I add text into a table field along with other values in a select?

Dim command7222 As New SqlClient.SqlCommand("INSERT INTO my_table(type, id5, change_id,send_date) values('" & "this is a test" & "','" & ("select ctl_num, id5_t, getdate() from my_table where ctl_num = '" & textbox1.Text & "')", myconn7222)
